"THE MISSION AND PURPOSE OF THE NEW RESTRICTED .CLUBMED gTLD IS TO BENEFIT INTERNET USERS BY ENSURING INCREASED TRUST AND CONFIDENCE THROUGH THE ELIMINATION OF USER CONFUSION AND ASSURANCE OF BRAND AUTHENTICITY.

The .clubmed gTLD will provide an authoritative internet space for Club Med and, potentially, its affiliates and partners that are associated with the Club Med brand. Second and third level domains can then be utilised for marketing purposes, with internet users assured of brand authenticity.
